Hook it up to some kind of power source till it turns over to 0000 again LOL.

Just record how many hours were on it when you put the new engine in and go from there.

Replace it with an inductive hour meter. Tiny Tach or something simular.
I had an hour meter on an Exmark cost me 2 hours and a handful of fuses this week.
It shorted out and blew the fuse when the key was turned on.
No...RESTROROB....I never got around to buying those inline circuit breakers.....

It probably would still have taken 2 hours to debug the mower.
Hour meters don't usually fail or short out. I hate working on Lazer z hp"s.
Especially going into a chopped and jumped out wiring harness.
There wasn't a lot of Hahaha going on.........
